Bits+Atoms – Tangible interfaces for exhibitions and events [€ 120]


Tangible interfaces in practice.

During the workshop attendees are going to learn basics of Processing environment and the means to connect it to the real world – gathering data from the sensors and controlling basic electronics.
All that skills and knowledge would be then used to conceive, design and create various interfaces for the imaginary museum or any other context suggested by the participants.

Participants should bring their own laptop with processing downloaded and unzipped ( and an Arduino with usb a-b cable. Minimum requirement is Arduino UNO (

An example of tangible interface that this workshop will teach to create can be watched here:

Participants will be organized in workgroups of 4 or 5 members and will be provided with a set of tools, materials and electronic components such as various kind of sensors, jumper wires, breadboard, batteries, AA battery holder, male headers, female headers, buttons, microswitches, etc.
